I was recently asked to present a Nomad PHP Lightning Talk. The meetings are online and are the largest of their kind. The presentation was recorded and will be placed on their site in the near future in case you missed it. 

Topic I presented:

Incorporating Custom PHP Code in Fabrik Website Applications
Fabrik is a custom application builder that works inside of Joomla! websites. The structure allows for non-coders to build basic applications and PHP developers to add custom code throughout to create more complex applications. We’ll take a quick look at the various areas where coders can add their PHP snippets or even write full plugins.

A big thank you to Nomad PHP for the opportunity to present a Lightning Talk!

Greater Houston Joomla User Group - speaker Robbie AdairI will be doing an online presentation for the NY, CT, NJ TriState Area Joomla User Group. I will be doing my Building Custom Applications with Fabrik presentation.

Summary of the presentation:
Can’t find a component to fit your needs? Fabrik gives you the ability to go well beyond just making custom forms. We’ll look at some of the basic capabilities and then build a small custom application in real time.

Greater Houston Joomla User Group - speaker Robbie AdairWe had a good turn out last night for the Greater Houston Joomla User Group at the Kendall Library. 

I did a brief Farbik presentation on using Content Types to quickly deploy layouts from one site to another and not have to re-invent the wheel.

Doug also gave us some tips on Akeeba AdminTools, it was a good meeting, and we hope the JUG continues to grow.

Joomla Day Florida - speaker Robbie AdairJoomla Day Florida's first year was a great success! I met lots of new people and caught up with other Joomla friends. My Going Further with Fabrik presentation was well received and had very good questions at the end. 

This was the description of what we covered: Take your Fabrik application to the next level by using more advanced features such as element javascript options, the calc element, cascading dropdowns, Joomla ACL, and customizing view templates.

Hats off to Jay, he did a bang up job on his first JDay! Looking forward to next year.
